The Federal Skilled Worker Program was temporarily halted a while ago so that the lengthy immigration backlog could be cleared up. Now that the backlog has been cleared quite a bit, the government is reopening the Federal Skilled Worker Program on May 4th, 2013. However, the program will only be open for 24 different occupations.

Do you want to immigrate to Canada as a permanent resident? The Federal Skilled Worker Program allows you to do so, but it does not mean that just anyone can apply. There are only 5,000 applications being accepted for the program over the next year or so, or 300 per occupation. In addition, there will be 1,000 accepted under the PhD stream. If you have a qualifying job offer, there is no cap for you.
Your work experience and potential job offer are not the only things that can determine if you are eligible for this immigration stream. For example, you will need to pass based on a points system, which awards points for different criteria. The most awarding criteria are language proficiency for the most points, while you will also be assessed in your education level, work experience (in Canada for more points), age and other criteria.
We have helped many people come to Canada through the Federal Skilled Worker Program, as well as other immigration streams. We know what it takes to immigrate using this category, and we know what visa officers are looking for.
Please trust us with your immigration application, and set yourself up for the best change of success. Remember, applications will be accepted starting May 4th, so do not delay!
